This is certainly a point of comfort I am working toward. If my romantic relationships could be as constructive, positive, and effortless as my platonic friendships I would be in a pretty amazing place! I still struggle at times, finding leftover social tradition which doesn't line up with my worldview, but I think that's just part of the journey.
I am fascinated by the asexual point of view when it comes to relationships. I was only recently introduced to the topic by IV, who is very interested in expanding her understanding of non-standard (I don't know how else to say it) sexuality like asexual and transgender. I suspect that a non-sexual approach to relating could probably shed some interesting light on how people relate to each other romantically.
